Jimmie Johnson wins rain-shortened Clash at Daytona

The rain that ended the race hit not long after the decisive move and Johnson won for the first time with new crew chief Kevin Meendering and new primary sponsor Ally.

William Byron captured his first career pole in qualifying for the Daytona 500 to lead a Hendrick Motorsports charge of the four fastest cars. "You don't want to take a chance of tearing up a really good auto, but you've got to figure out what to race".

"That's a pretty awesome feat, I feel", said longtime Hendrick crew chief Chad Knaus, who is entering his first season with Byron after 18 years with Johnson. The pole also comes in Byron's first race with new crew chief Chad Knaus, who led Jimmie Johnson to his first career pole when they took the top spot for the 2002 Daytona 500. With more rain looming, Johnson dipped low and tried to side-draft Menard as they battled for the lead.

"I looked in the mirror and there were a lot of cars caught up in it", Johnson said.

"That's something for the history books, I guess", he said. "We're prepared. This is the first step of our process together". The drivers qualified for the race by being pole sitters from 2018, former Clash winners, former Daytona 500 winners, and drivers that qualified for the playoffs in 2018 that didn't already qualify in another way. After splitting with Johnson at the end of last season, Knaus essentially repeated the feat with Byron. Aside of Johnson, who led only the race's final four laps under caution, three other drivers led at least one lap of the race. About twenty minutes later, the race resumed as Menard and the Team Penske trio of Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and Ryan Blaney followed him behind.

Busch said team owner Chip Ganassi complained to NASCAR about Johnson driving below the double-yellow line to make the move. NASCAR determined that Johnson was forced below the yellow line.

Menard was positioned to win for Wood Brothers Racing only weeks after the death of team founder Glen Wood. "Unfortunately, we just got turned there".

As part of a policy change, the cars of the first-place and second-place finishers, plus at least one randomly selected vehicle, will undergo post-race inspection at the track. I got that move inside of him and was hopeful the 1 (of Kurt Busch) was gonna be following me through. I got below him before he blocked it, and then I think he came down a little bit to defend and block. "I don't know what triggered his vehicle wobbling and then the accident started from there".

This race was scheduled to be a 75-lap race around the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) high-banked Daytona International Speedway oval in Daytona Beach, Florida, but it was cut short to only 59 laps due to rain, which caused several caution flag periods throughout the race.
